Counseling Services

If you are experiencing a crisis during non-business hours please call public safety at 217-464-8888 and ask to be connected to the on-call staff member on duty.

The Student Mental and Behavioral Health office (located in the DMH-Millikin Health Clinic building) provides students with free and confidential counseling services.

Current Spring 2019 Clinic hours: Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm

It is not uncommon for students to experience distress from time to time. The college years are one of the most challenging transition periods in life. Adjusting to campus life, increased academic demands, relationship problems, and other personal issues can feel overwhelming at times.

Confidential personal counseling services are available throughout the academic year to assist students in overcoming their difficulties. Staff members utilize an approach that emphasizes personal responsibility, prevention, intervention, and a concern for the whole student. It is our goal to assist students in improving their abilities to make informed decisions that positively affect their mental, physical, and spiritual health.

Appointments can be arranged by calling 217-424-6360, or in person at the Millikin/DMH Health Clinic, located on the corner of Wood Street and Fairview Avenue.

*Counseling and referral services are free of charge.

Questions? Feel free to contact Chris for more information.

Mental Health Screeners

If you are interested in taking a mental health screening online you can find resources for this at: https://screening.mentalhealthamerica.net/screening-tools

These screeners are provided by the group Mental Health America. After taking a screening, the site will provide you ideas for further resources and follow-up. If you would like to discuss your results with a counselor at Millikin feel free to set up an appointment. You can set up an appointment with us by stopping by our office (located across from the Decatur Indoor Sports Center - DISC) or by calling us at 217-424-6360.  

 

Community Providers

At times, students can find benefit from connecting with community providers outside of Millikin. The Student Mental and Behavioral Health office can assist students in finding out what additional community supports are available for them to utilize.  Feel free to make an appointment with our office to discuss what else the greater Decatur community area can provide. You can set up an appointment with us by stopping by our office (located across from the Decatur Indoor Sports Center - DISC) or by calling us at 217-424- 6360.
